This program will beep, using a duration and pitch specified on the
command line or the program's defaults.
Speaker sound support:
For PC speaker sound to work you need to be in the operator group
and need r/w permissions to /dev/speaker device.
Load kernel module:
# kldload speaker
Add a user to operator group:
% pw groupmod operator -m jerry
Uncomment the following lines in /etc/devfs.rules file (create it
if it doesn't exist):
# Allow members of group operator to cat things to the speaker
add path 'speaker' mode 0660 group operator
To load these new rules add the following to /etc/rc.conf:
Then restart devfs to load the new rules:
% /etc/rc.d/devfs restart
